Excellent experience all around. We ordered the shishito peppers, pork belly buns, and 3 sushi rolls. I would recommend them all. Server took great care of us and answered all our questions patiently. They even gave us some delicious mochi for the bday at the table.

First time back since moving from Miami in 2017. Since I was hanging with a friend and I had to choose a restaurant, this was my first thought!! The food is still as delicious as when I first dined there when it originally opened. The service is spot on!! Tanuki never disappoints.

It was an amazing experience and the food was outstanding . Welcoming us with a cocktail of choice to unlimited mimosas then followed by some dim sum which was mouth watering . The dim sum was made individually with fresh ingredients, I’m chinese and never had I ate a chicken sui Mai with truffle ! It was mind blowing . We were there for fathers days and felt it was definitely worth a drive through the pouring rain of lovely Miami.

Some of the menu items were to die for, but some (like warm mushroom salad ) below average. The restaurant was out of many items. Service was pretty good, fish was fresh.

They didn’t have half items from the menu, server was rushing us to order cocktails and food. And then all the time we ordered something, he would tell us they out of that item or he would have to check with the kitchen.
Arrogant manager was walking around like he was extremely busy.., while it was 2 tables occupied at the restaurant. And him and the hostess definitely didn’t have time to say goodbye when we were leaving, while they were chatting by the exit door.

The Happy Hour prices were excellent and we didn't like there was a manipulation of size or quality in order to make the lower prices happen. We will definitely be back when in the FL area again.

First night out in south beach with an old friend. We came in at 8:30, and the restaurant was moderately busy. The service was friendly and fast. The food was excellent. It was a little bit pricier than I would usually do, but it was worth it.

Excellent overall. Had cobia ceviche - sliced very thin with good sauce, Brussel sprouts. Then shrimp moneybags dim sum which was good - Chile sauce was the best of the 3, mushroom hot pot - very filling and tasty with truffle sauce, and summer crab roll - a bit different with crab salad and crispy rice - not the usual roll. Despite comments about poor service, we had good service and it was a busy Saturday night. Will come back.
